Rise and shout the zucchinis are out! So what in heavens name are we supposed to do with not only the zucchinis that we have grown in our very own gardens but also the ones dumped on our porches from our close friends, close enemies and neighbors? Don't worry we've got zucchini bread to the rescue. Now I have been on the search for a great zucchini bread recipe for some time now. The one in my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook is good but a little dry for my taste. The one I found with sour cream on allrecipes.com was all right but a little over zealous on the sour cream and a little bland on the flavor and tasted like a German Pancake inside. So I did a little testing here and there and here's what I came up with! Give it a try!
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
5. Grease your two 9x5 bread pans. Now if you have problems like I do with baked goods sticking to your pans try this handy trick taught to me by a guy on youtube. By combining equal parts oil, shortening and flour you create this fantastical anti-sticking super substance that makes the stickiest substance quiver in fear. After whisking these ingredients get a pastry brush and lavishly paint the insides of your pans. Make sure to well coat the corners because that's where it gets the stickiest. When you're done it should look like this:Perfectly Moist Zucchini Bread
Pour your batter evenly between your pans and pop it in the oven for 60 mins or until your toothpick pulls out clean. Enjoy your delicious bread before your husband and kids get home! ~Maren
